Retro-reflection can be used for the detection and classification of optical systems. The probability of detecting sights over large ranges depends on parameters of the laser, the sight, the detector and the atmosphere. We have developed a software tool that simulates a sight detection system. With the use of this tool we can 'test' different sight detection system designs and make estimations on detection ranges of optical systems. In this paper we give a short overview of the physical aspects that have been implemented in the model and discuss the experimental validation of our model.
